can that be what's in Bono's drink in this pic perhaps?



I'm planning a trip to dublin this summer, so I want to know, what are the things I MUST eat and drink there?
I already want an Irish fry, Guinness and Jamesson, but what more?
I heard about soda bread, what does that taste like?

Get it toasted with lots of butter.

Nothing else that tastes like it, it's really quite plain but it's heavenly. Everytime I go away we take a stack of soda.

If you want whiskey, try Bushmills - from the oldest whiskey factory in the world, which is right here in Norn Ireland

Stew, it's always a good thing to try

And potato bread, you'll get that in your fry no doubt.



Even though it has nothing to do with food but a really cool place to visit is St.Michans church on Church Street. You get to see the crypts and the mummies. It's near the whiskey distillery.

Stop being so mean to me!!!! I have a grandmother, well great-grandmother actually, who is Irish. That is enough for me to declare myself Irish. Plus when I spent 3 days in Dublin, well, outside of Dublin, really, I felt at home! I felt a connection. Kind of.

I'm going to move there one day and eat Irish food and drink Guinness. I can't stand Guinness, but that isn't the point.

Rochelle, we're going to an auction in St Johns Rd on Saturday. We could be neighbours! Well, almost neighbours I dont know what part you live in, but I thought of you as we drove around having a look last weekend

And that St Michans Church is amazing. I will never understand how or why they are just out on display like that, as surely the presence of people breathing down there disturbs the air which has kept them so preserved. It's so strangely casual, given the bodies are hundreds of years old and 2 of them are of quite significance. It's a brilliant place to visit.

I personally like the leek and potato soup...ymmmmmmmyyyy....
For the record, both my mum's and dad's families are from Ireland, Campbell and Burke's all the way...

I hate Guinness and I hate cabbage and I hate corned beef. Ate it all the time while growing up and I hated it. Still do.

Is potato bread what Scottish people call potato scones? or is that just what my grandparents call them?

or is it something different?

Need more talk of Irish fare because I am going to Ireland in the fall. I want to try as much of it as possible! Someone mentioned a potatoe and leek soup and that sounds scrummy.....I'd love the recipe! How do the fish & chips compare in Ireland vs in England?
